Baking Coordinator Needed for Asbury Cafe


Baking Coordinator Needed:


Astonishing fact - Asbury Cafe has been running for 60 years. In the past 60 years over $1.5 million has been donated to organizations that feed the hungry of Albuquerque. About 25 years ago, St. John's became involved in the Asbury Cafe. Up to this year, the people that started coordinating 25 years ago were still the coordinators at St. John's. This charity needs new coordinators to continue.


The NM State Fair and Asbury Cafe will run from September 9-19, and there are still many volunteer roles for anyone wanting to help. This year there is no Baking Coordinator. This means that making pies, freezing pies, baking pies, and coordinating freezer storage is a waste because the pies will not get to the NM Fairgrounds.


The role of Baking Coordinator, which can be a team effort, can be further explained by Dave Young. Some of the duties involve:


  • Calling volunteers who signed up to bake and assigning pie types.

  • Handing out frozen pies to volunteers.

  • Being at St. John's, in the evenings, to organize the freshly baked pies that are dropped off.

Please talk with Dave Young about your interest in becoming a coordinator.
